Towel Day is not a contrivance of the Reading Program Committee

While this summer's Reading Program's theme is "Make A Splash: Dive Into a Great Book @ Your Library," today's "holiday" celebrated around the world has absolutely nothing to do with it.  If of course you are a galaxy-hopping, intergalactic vagabond, you may wish to take note of this most auspicious day.  Towel Day is a celebration held by the fans of the famed Science Fiction author Douglas Adams and his great work "The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy."  In this master work, Adams relates to the reader one of the most important rules for space travelers, always carry a towel.  Towels can be used to fulfill many needs not limited to its general drying duties.  Take a look in chapter 3 of the "Guide" and you will find an interesting list of uses for towles that interstellar tourists should keep in mind.  Also keep in mind that towels may well be a necessary item to pack if you are bringing your children to "The Water Show" at your local library, as getting wet may well be in your future.  P.S. Don't judge a book by its terrible movie adaptations, you might miss out on international holidays.
